MOMZRIGHT

Not too often do you hear 'fantastic' and 'Brussels sprouts' in the same sentence but this recipe is deserving of that. When I mentioned I was bringing Brussels sprouts to a holiday get together, my mom told me not to bother. After eating this dish, my family now requests I bring it to every get together!

I also got a "don't bother" and several turned up noses from my family when I said I was making this dish for Thanksgiving. Everyone loved it, including a picky sister and my even pickier two year old. Since then we have served it at 3 dinner parties. The people that try just a spoon to be polite always go for seconds. We end up sending the recipe home with everyone. Contrary to what some say, I think it is great the next day. My advice is to cook the bacon and do the shredding ahead of time. Then it's much easier to throw together at dinner time. Even if you're skeptical, try it! You won't be disappointed.

Really good. Not a fan of shredding them since it looks sloppy & overcooks easily that way, so I quartered/halved them. Turned out to be very tasty. I even used pre-crumbled, pre-drained bacon, so it was less greasy/fattening, but just as delicious!

This recipe is definitely 5 stars! Helpful Hint: Try soaking these lovely little veggies in salt water for an hour or so prior to shredding them. The salt water helps dispel the bitterness! This recipe was so, very, very tasty! Didn't change a thing and the recipe didn't need it. Excellent!!!
